As part of a larger study, a graduate assistantship will be available at the University of Delaware to determine basic demographic ecology and possible impacts of habitat management upon northern bobwhite in the Mid-Atlantic States of New Jersey and Delaware.
The successful applicant may be either a M.S. or Ph.D. student; however, Ph.D. students will be expected to design an additional ecological and/or theoretical research program that operates in tandem with initial research goals (I especially encourage Ph.D. students that have research interests that link behavioral ecology, landscape ecology, and/or population dynamics). The minimum responsibilities of the graduate student will include locating suitable study sites, capture of birds, extensive radio telemetry, vegetation sampling, and potential collection of blood and other tissue samples.
Qualified applicants should have a B.S. in Zoology or Wildlife Ecology and competitive GPA and GRE scores. Ph.D. applicants should have a M.S. or outstanding record of undergraduate research publication and should state future research interests and goals. Previous experience with avian field research techniques and/or northern bobwhite a plus. Funding for this project is pending approval by state agencies but we anticipate a possible start date of Jan 2005. The minimum annual stipend will be $15,000 per year plus a tuition-waiver and health benefits. More information about my research and information for prospective students are available at: http://ag.udel.edu/enwc/staff/williams/index.htm.
Interested individuals should send a cover letter outlining experience and research interests, curriculum vitae, unofficial copies of university transcripts and GRE scores, and contact information for three references to DR. CHRIS WILLIAMS, Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, 253 Townsend Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716 (PH: 302-831-4592, FAX: 302-831-8889, Email: ckwillia@udel.edu). Applications by e-mail are welcome, and will be accepted until the position is filled.
